It's also the fucked up computer scoring, a knockdown only counts no more than a punch! But the ref should have issued an automatic stoppage after the third KD.

They exposed what's wrong with boxing period, corruption and scoring flaws. I saw terrell fight today too and I thought he should have edged it too but he didn't get the nod either

And to add on to that is the officiating in the bouts. Like you said, the fight should've been stopped but he didn't stop it. It's been so many fights I've watched during these Olympics and I just get sick to my stomach. Those boxers work all those hours, put in the necessary preparation to go out and try to make their families, countries proud and win a medal and to be robbed, cheated like that just sucks to watch. AIBA is in serious need of reform and some sort of regulation. Dare I say their more corrupt then the pro game

Yep saw that to. You could make the case that Diaz and this other Team USA fighter were caught in the cross hairs of corruption too. But the Gaushea fight today was sickening also. The first round I'll give to his opponent who's name escapes me due to the spelling lol, but Terell dominated...absolutely DOMINATED him in rounds 2 and 3 and they gave it to dude by a point. I'm all for keeping your head high and controlling the things you can control as Atlas said but I'd be so crushed if that happened to me. Their over their victimizing these fighters

I understand that everything is business but oh my god. Way too corrupt.

aiba has voted to get rid of the current scoring system and it won't be in place for the next olympics. they're also doing away with headgears. i don't understand why that wasn't done for this one. why wait four more years?

the olympics aren't a reflection of amateur boxing in the U.S.

Thanks Professor,

I have not checked this out. But are they just going to go to a 10-point must scoring system like in the pros? They should, with a three-knockdown rule in effect, or three standing 8 counts ending the fight. No more headgear, that's surprising. This also may put a damper on the WBC looking to experiment with computer scoring, which is supposed to be introduced in November at their convention. Jose Suliman said that they would like to try something that is NOT number (Punch-Stat) based, but a system that more accurately reflects what happens in the ring. I still like the traditional 10 point must system, but believe that there should be more liberal use of the lesser points given to boxers who lose a round.

I sent a letter to the WBC about this, that there should be a wider use of the 10-point must system. Now if the Olympics would do that, it would help.

I'm glad the cheating ass ref got sent home.... BUT what about these sheisTY ass judges? That fucking last round was scored 10-10! How the fuck does that happen? No1 deserves to have such an obvious win taken away from them! That could fuck with a fighters psyche 4 real!

The U.S. System ain't that much better....the only good thing I can say about what's happening now is at least they overturned some of the original rulings of the fights. But I think we all can agree that it's been some highly questionable decision making and unfortunately not all the wrongs have been made right
